No matter where you are in the disability claim process — whether you’re thinking about the prospect of disability and need more information, or you have been out of work for some time and the insurance company is challenging your benefits — the disability lawyers at Riemer & Associates will use their years of experience to assist you. You can then focus on what’s most important — your health.
Our Firm represents clients at every stage of the disability claim process, offering you one-stop shopping. We assist with developing your exit strategy from work. We help you prepare your short term disability application, long term disability application and application for a medical leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). We monitor your benefits after they are approved, and we will prepare your appeal if an insurer denies your benefits. In the unlikely event you need to file a lawsuit against your insurer, our disability attorneys will litigate your case in Court. We have been at the forefront of disability claim litigation for over two decades. If you need legal assistance with a Workers Compensation case or a Social Security Disability claim, we also have you covered. Our affiliate firm, Turley, Redmond, Rosasco & Rosasco, offers Social Security and Workers Compensation representation of the highest caliber.
Because we have exclusively handled long term disability matters for over two decades, we have a profound sense of understanding for the frustration, fear and anger many of our clients feel towards their insurance company. Our customized approach to your unique situation will make you feel at ease and give you a sense of comfort and predictability. You will no longer be alone when facing complex decisions about your disability claim. We will assist you every step of the way.
We can help you whether you live in New York or out-of-state. If you live out-of-state, we keep in touch by telephone, fax, email and overnight mail. We run a paperless office and pride ourselves on our technological sophistication. If litigation is necessary, we bring lawsuits against insurance companies in the Federal courts in New York. This is possible for out-of-state clients because insurance companies can be sued any place in which they can be found and most insurance companies can be found in New York. Many of our clients find this to be advantageous because the Federal courts in New York City are among the best in the country to bring ERISA cases. If, however, you prefer to bring your case closer to home, we can represent you by seeking the assistance of local counsel. We have colleagues we work with throughout the country.
Arranging a consultation is the first step you need to take to get your questions answered. During your consultation, besides answering all your questions, we also will help you decide which payment option makes the most sense for you. Our firm offers various payment arrangements, including hourly retainers, contingency arrangements, fixed fees, and a combination of these.
